I know there is a similar thread thats already been posted, but I’m not sure if my symptoms are exactly the same or if its the same problem, so I’m keeping this independeent of the other one.
This started about 2-3 weeks ago. I first felt it when bench pressing, that I would get a dull pain in my lower tricep/elbow region when doing my working sets. After a while, it just kept getting worse and worse. Now, I start feeling it near the end of my squat sets (that I do prior to bench, starting strength). Then when I did power cleans, it would aggravate it further, especially if I cant bring the bar high enough and I don’t get low enough under the bar when rotating my elbows. Funny thing is it doesn’t hurt that much when doing military presses.
I first thought it was my upper tricep/shoulder, but now It is definitely my lower tricep/elbow region, and it almost feels like its the tendon that connects the tricep muscle to the elbow. I can’t even do my workouts properly, the pain becomes strong after my warm-up of 45 on the olympic bar. When I stop my workout, the pain goes away about 30 min after, and only reoccurs when I go back to doing my workout. The weird thing is, it comes back when I play basketball, go figure. Anyone have a similar problem? What do you guys think that could help me out?
